Blue Moon

Installation and performance, Centre d’Art Fabra i Coats, Barcelona, 2012

In 1934 Richard Rodgers and Lorenz Hart composed the song "Blue Moon" that later became a classic, interpreted by singers such as Billie Holiday or Elvis Presley. "Blue Moon" is also the expression used to describe the coincidence of two full moons in the same month. This version of Blue Moon leans as much on the popular song as on the lunar phenomenon to establish a narrative between different events, sometimes fictitious, sometimes real, interlinking personal anecdotes, political questions and questions about identity: a pianist and a singer recite 6 small poems that describe from the beginning of the universe to the end of civilization. Meanwhile, a camera points down to a table where several objects are used to give a visual reference to the poems, using a green screen to add backgrounds and projecting the result live on a nearby screen.
